Success Stories – Dolphin Kids™ Programs and Camps | We don’t teach, we transform learning

Success Stories

Thank you for teaching me how to breathe, it really helps me calm down and relax.

Grade 4 Student

My son was so excited when he came out the first day with his “Brain Hat” on. He had coloured a map of the brain and had learned all about the parts and functions. Very cool that a 4.5 year old can start learning that. We have also really benefited as a family from Rainbow and Dragon breathing. My son wants to go back next year!

Dolphin KIDS Summer Program, Vancouver, BC

A really great program that provides kids (and adults) with a framework and mindset to work with everyday situations. The simple POD steps are easy to follow and age appropriate for my 5 year old son. Since his time at Dolphin Kids camp, he has shown an increased willingness to try new things and persevere through daily challenges. I knew he had embraced the program when he suggested that I practice some “dragon breathing” during a particularly tense moment! One of the best programs available and so beneficial to have my son experience this at a young age.

The Dolphin KIDS programs were fantastic experiences for our family. My child came away with a new-found sense of community and social responsibility and now speaks openly about the need to be a role model to others. Dolphin picked up and reinforced our family’s commitment to attachment villages, connection of the individual to the whole and mindful choices and reflection through play and nature. I especially appreciated how the highly skilled and empathic staff “collected” both children and their families, bringing them into the group environment, and how they really seemed to get to know us and build and guide our strengths. The neuroscience and evidence-based programming also appeal to creative inquiry and exploration and I loved the weekly ritual of the parent greeting, bonding and community contribution. The lemonade was good too! Overall, this Dolphins experience brought our family to an entirely new level of capacity and empowerment, which was a welcome and pleasant surprise.

A few years ago, I read Dr. Kang’s ‘The Dolphin Way’ and felt what she was saying about parenting and children, in today’s day and age, really resonated. When I discovered Dolphin KIDS summer camps, I knew my 5-year-old daughter would benefit from participating. I was so impressed with not only the talented and kind staff, but also with the concepts that are emphasized as part of the program – resiliency, contribution, downtime, among many others. One day she was learning how to manage her emotions with ‘box breathing’, the next day she was engaged in play activities exerting her creativity and on another, she was making sandwiches to be delivered to those less fortunate. We still talk about the activities and things she learned at camp and that says something. These camps are a wonderful place for parents and their children to begin to dialogue about the things that really count that are so essential to cultivating balanced, strong and compassionate children.
